It is a very common belief held by many in Northern Ireland, including myself, when younger, that corned beef was made from Argentinian horses. For those of you from NI reading this. THIS IS NOT TRUE. I had to explain this to my 25 year old wife just the other day.........

For some reason, I always thought baked beans were "bacon beans." I think I just called them that one day, and my family stuck with calling it that, because they thought it was cute. So, when I'd be in the lunch line in school and ask for "bacon beans", I never got what was so funny. It took a very long time for me to realize I was using the wrong word.

When my brothers and I were younger, my mother used to tell us to eat all our dinner because there were children in Ethiopia that were starving. After my mom left the kitchen, I would throw half of my meal in the trash so when the homeless people rummaged through the trash, they would have something to eat. I thought I was single handedly feeding the population of Ethiopia.

I used to think that anchovies were a vegetable that tasted like chili but were unusual because if you put them in water they would float

For ages I believed that the yolk of an egg was the baby chicken that had died! I thought it was gross and it made me feel sick when I saw a runny yolk.

To make matters worse, my mum once made a hole in an egg with a pin and the air that was escaping made a chirping sound. You can guess what I thought it was - Yes - a chick that was still alive!

*F*

When I was a kid, one of my friends dropped some food, picked it up, dusted it off and said, "You have to eat your peck of dirt before you die." For yeaers after, I believed that there was some counter "up there" somewhere that tallied all of the dirt that you ate, so I became quite careful about any dirt on food.

As a kid, I would watch old classic cartoons every day after I got home from school (quite old ones). I was a rather big fan of Popeye. I saw that by eating spinach, he got big and strong, and I (despite being a girl) wanted to be big and strong like Popeye too. So I asked my parents to buy and cook some spinach.

Not only did it taste bland, but I was quite annoyed when no matter how much I ate, I didn't grow huge muscles. But if at first you don't succeed... well, I ended up trying again a few more nights, and finally gave up after no results. Dammit.

I used to believe that the cracker barrel cheese my mother liked was made with crushed crackers in it.
A way of using up crackers that were broken in manufacturing.

I used to believe that green apples were unripened red apples and for years I would never eat green apples. They had as much appeal to me as green tomatoes.

I used to believe that all cocktails contained either shrimp or crab, because of my mother making such cocktails for my dad. The meat was served in a stemmed dish, topped with cocktail sauce and eaten with a little fork. So seeing restaurants advertising "cocktails" this is what came to mind.

I used to believe that if I ate eggs I would become pregnant, as I asked my Mum how babies were made and got the big story about eggs and sperm.

I wasn't very young when in a conversation with many people older than I. We were talking about different vegetables when someone mentioned okra. I said, "isn't okra a fish?"

I thought that okra, a long, stalkey vegetable was an asian-like cod type of fish.

haha.

My grandfather got the kids to eat all the spotted bananas with brown spots by telling us that's where honey came from. That brown oozy spot is pure honey! We'd snap up the "Honey Bananas" and leave the hard yellow ones for them.

When i was a wee little one, i hated peas, so my mother told me that peas were good for your toes. Well, my mother has pretty feet [petite and her toes are perfectly sized and shaped] so i figured she knew what she was talking about. It wasn't until i spotted an old ladies feet [veiny, cracked, with long yellow nails] and diagnosed her. She was pretty upset, and my mom was pretty embarassed. Oh well, I still eat my peas; good for the toes ya know.
